Sun Country Airlines wasn’t born in a corporate office. Instead, it was started in 1982 by a small group of pilots and flight attendants in Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN, the very people who love flying. The small group that once flew for Braniff International were joined by a few area businessmen and MLT vacations, and the company with new Sun Country colors lifted off, quite literally in 1983, with a maiden flight between Sioux Falls and Las Vegas. Only a few months later, the world would see the first appearance of the smiley face. Coincidence? Maybe. But the same “can-do” hometown spirit that launched Sun Country still lifts us and our passengers today.
